29-point win by Derby Ace against Air 21

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
2011 Commissioners Cup
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Air 21 Express
Derby Ace defeats Air 21, 121-92

B-Meg capitalized on the distracted Air 21 team as they rout the Express, 121-92. Air 21 which was rumored to trade their 3 1st round picks Al-Hussaini, Baclao and Guevarra to San Miguel seemed affected by the reports and Derby Ace played an almost perfect game with 27 assists and led by Nino “KG” Canaleta with 28 points while the duo of James Yap and Peter June Simon combined for 41 points.

The only dent in the game of the Llamados was the low contribution of Shamari Spears who was ineffective on his 2nd straight game with only 8 points and needs to be replaced in order for Derby Ace to climb up the standings.

Before the game, it was announced that Rico Maierhofer will be out of the season with a left ACL tear. Let us pray for the speedy recovery of Rico Maierhofer.

Note: After the game, it was announced that PBA Commissioner Salud has already approved the trade of Hontiveros, Siegle, Pena and Artadi to Air 21 in exchange for Al-Hussaini, Baclao and Guevarra.

Game scores:

Derby Ace 121 – Canaleta 28, Yap J 22, Simon 19, Villanueva 13, Pingris 12, Gaco 9, Spears 8, Escobal 4, Salvador 4, Yap R 2, Adducul 0.

Air21 92 – Al-Hussaini 17, Reyes 17, Robinson 15, Avenido 9, Baclao 8, Juntilla 5, Najorda 5, Arboleda 5, Sharma 4, Urbiztondo 3, Gatumbato 2, Gonzales 2, Guevarra 0.

Powerade defeats Derby Ace 103-96

New Import, same results for B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados as they lost to Powerade Tigers in Lanao del Norte, 103-96. It was the 2nd straight loss for the Llamados to start the 2011 PBA Philippine Cup.

New Derby Ace Import Shamari Spears led B-Meg with 22 points but was mostly ineffective offensively and defensively as Tigers Import Russel Carter outplayed him scoring 36 points and contributing 19 rebounds and 6 assists.

Nino “KG” Canaleta led the locals with 16 points. It was actually a close game in the 1st half until Powerade pulled away in the 3rd quarter scoring 38 points with Derby Ace scoring only 19.

Only the Derby Ace guards contributed well with James Yap, Peter June Simon, Jonas Villanueva and Roger Yap scoring in double figures but the big men combined could only contribute 4 points.

Another bad news for the Llamados, Rico Maierhofer had a hyper-extended left knee and will be out indefinitely. But the good news is Rafi Reavis and Kerby Raymundo will be back soon.

Game scores:

Powerade 103 – Carter 36, David 18, Lanete 10, Macapagal 8, Gonzales 8, Antonio 7, Espino 6, Cruz 5, Calimag 4, Anthony 1, Reyes J. 0, Rizada 0.

MVP James Yap led B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados to a win versus the Talk N Text Tropang Texters with 26 points, but it was Rico Maierhofer and Marc Pingris who set the tone for the game and grabbed crucial rebounds in the 4th quarter to tie this best-of-seven semifinals series at 2-2.

Marc Pingris had a double double with 13 points and 11 rebounds while Rookie of the Year Rico Maierhofer scored 10 points and grabbed 7 rebounds (6 offensive). With the series now tied at 2-2, it is now just a best-of-three series with the winner of Game 5 this Wednesday gaining an upper hand.

Derby Ace had their biggest lead at 21, 66-45 in the 3rd quarter but Talk N Text battled back in the 4th led by Jimmy Alapag who scored 22 points in the game. B-Meg must improve their free throw shooting in their next game, since they missed 16 free throws in Game 4.

Special mention goes to Nino “KG” Canaleta who also had a double double with 19 points and 13 rebounds.
